Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: Maria is a retired educator, Tony is a semi-retired attorney who is still busy with some cases. We purchased this property for its location to the center of Athens, and easy access to the beaches. The Metro is 5 fast stops to Syndagma - center of the city - we also liked to be near the antiquities so when our family and friends visit they have easy and fast access to them.. The tram is near Syndagma where it can take you to the numerous city beaches in the summer. I also was a part time travel agent and can help travellers with their holiday plans to islands and greek villages. We love travelling but understand comfort. We live in Michigan 7 months out of the year and reside in South Africa, and Greece the rest of the time. We also have a 2nd home 2 hours away in a village high on a mountain where it is breezy and you can breath fresh mountain cool air. We go there often and also rent it out.

Why Neos Kosmos, Athens, Greece:
Our property has an open living space between Large entrance, living room and dining room. It is a wide space to feel comfortable. It is extremely spacious - 1300 sq. ft. Read some of our reviews to get a better idea as to why this property over others. Have a look at the youtube link as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
the location is great, near the center of Athens (Syndagma), 7 minutes away on the Metro from the apartment. The local tram, near Syndagma takes you to the numerous beaches of Athens. The neighborhood is safe, and has some of the best restaurants in the city They are very reasonable, and authentic Greek cuisine. That was one of the reasons why we love it here. Live like a local. Buy fresh produce from the farmer's market down the road. Some of our guests have stayed at our village Stone house, located 3,000 feet up on a Greek mountain side with forests behind the house. Fresh air, and cooler temperatures - go to 3777846 same site. For either site, you can contact us direct- mlamberis-gmail.com ( use "at" for the hyphen).
